At the rally on September 8th, the speakers mentioned follow-up actions that we can take to discourage further fossil fuel development and make way for a swift transition to renewables. One helpful action is signing the petition Elizabeth May has put forward to be read in the House of Commons. The more signatures the better! Please see the information below and pass it on to your friends and family.
On the map, at riseforclimate.org hundreds of events are filling up the continents! From the Californian coast to Papua New Guinea, from South Africa to Iceland, thousands of people are rising up to tell their local leaders they want a swift and fair transition to a fossil free world. The events include concerts, aerial photographs, sit-ins, screenings, forums and lemonade stands. They take place at community centres, libraries and public squares. This is creative, grassroots action, for the people by the people!
